The young nephews of an American death row inmate started Kids Against the Death Penalty and recently traveled to Geneva, Switzerland to attend and speak at the 4th World Congress Against the Death Penalty.

Gavin, Nick and Nathan Been (12, 13 and 15) are just like any American teenagers – teasing their mom Terri about growing taller than her and asking her to drive them around to meet up with their friends.

Except their uncle Jeff Wood is on Texas death row convicted under the Law of Parties even though he did not kill anyone.

Watch an extract from Gavin’s speech at the “Words of Victims” evening during the World Congress:
